Running the Configuration Wizard silently

Jun 15, 2017

Run the Configuration Wizard silently to configure multiple Provisioning Servers that share several of the same configuration settings such as the farm, site, and store locations.

Prerequisite

The Configuration Wizard must first be run on any Provisioning Server in the farm that has the configuration settings that will be used in order to create the Provisioning Services database and to configure the farm.

The basic steps involved in the silent configuration of servers within the farm are:
  • Create a ConfigWizard.ans file from a configured Provisioning Server in the farm.
  • Copy the ConfigWizard.ans file onto the other servers within the farm, and modify the IP address in the ConfigWizard.ans file to match each server in the farm.
  • Run the ConfigWizard.exe with the /a parameter.

To create the ConfigWizard.ans file

  1. Run the ConfigWizard.exe with the /s parameter on a configured server.
  2. On the Farm Configuration page, choose the Join existing farm option.
  3. Continue selecting configuration settings on the remaining wizard pages, then click Finish.
  4. Copy the resulting ConfigWizard.ans file from the Provisioning Services Application Data directory in \ProgramData\Citrix\Provisioning Services.

To copy and modify the ConfigWizard.ans file

  1. For each server that needs to be configured, copy the ConfigWizard.ans file to the Provisioning Services Application Data directory.
  2. Edit the StreamNetworkAdapterIP= so that it matches the IP of the server being configured. If there is more than one IP being used for Provisioning Services on the server, add a comma between each IP address.

To run the ConfigWizard.exe silently

To configure servers, run the ConfigWizard.exe with the /a parameter on each server that needs to be configured.

Note: To get a list of valid ConfigWizard parameters:
  1. Run ConfigWizard.exe with the /? parameter.
  2. In the Provisioning Services Application Data directory, open the resulting ConfigWizard.out file.
  3. Scroll down to the bottom of the file to view all valid parameters.

Tip

To get a list of commands and their descriptions, use the / c parameter.
